Youth Summit March 20 at college

The SUNY Oswego Office of Business and Community Relations, in conjunction with the Workforce Development Board of Oswego County, will host the eighth annual Youth Career Summit from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, March 20, in Lanigan Hall.

The summit is an opportunity for eighth-graders from school districts across Oswego County to explore their interests and how they align with career opportunities in the community.

The event will feature local speakers on topics such as criminal justice, food and agriculture, STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and trade careers, as well as how to understand one’s individual strengths, said Jeffrey Grimshaw, director of business and community relations for the college.

SUNY Oswego, Huhtamaki, Constellation Energy, Fulton Savings Bank, Eastern Shore Associates, and Chris Nelson-State Farm Insurance support the event.

Oswego County Federal Credit Union is providing an iPad Mini to be awarded in a drawing to a student participant.
